On May 14, the Constitutional Court of Ukraine dismissed Stanislav Shevchuk from the office of the Head of this authority. 12 judges, the necessary minimum to pass, voted for such decision after the Court expressed a motion of no confidence. The colleagues blamed him for making the court's work too political, the source said.
